Charlie Daniels Has Died

Recommended Posts

A great American. I had the privilege of seeing him in concert 4 times. On one of those occasions it was at the Alabama Theater in MB. He was given an Honorary Citizen of SC award that night. He got a little choked up and thanked everyone and said he loved the people of SC and the State because we were great patriots. RIP Charlie, and thanks for the great music and memories.

Well the eagle's been flyin' slow
And the flag's been flyin' low
And a lotta people sayin' that America's
fixin' to fall
Well speakin' just for me
And some people from Tennessee
We've got a thing or two to tell you all
This lady may have stumbled
But she aint never failed
And if the Russians don't believe that
They can all go straight to hell
We're gonna put her feet back
On the path of righteousness and then
God bless America again
And you never did think
That it ever would happen again
( In America, did you )
You never did think
That we'd ever get together again
( We damn sure could )
Yeah, we're walkng real proud
And we're talkin' real loud again
( In America )
You never did think
That it ever would happen again

From The Sound up in Long Island
Out to San Francisco Bay
And everthing that's in between them
Is our own
And we may have done a little bit
Of fightin' amongst ourselves
But you outside people best leave us
'Cause we'll all stick together
And you can take that to the bank
That's the cowboys and the hippies
And the rebels and and the yanks
You just go and lay your hand
On a Pittsburgh Steelers' fan
And I think you're gonna finally

I remember in '76 when he was here to play at Cockfest, but the event was cancelled due to heavy rain. The hit the campus group took for that was pretty much the end of Cockfest.

I remember Cockfests when I was in school in the 90's. I think Hootie and the Blowfish played at least one. 

Or maybe it was called Cockstock. But it was something like that.
